Myriapoda (centipedes and millipedes)[edit]

Stone centipede (Common representative species. Represents Lithobius foricatus. Found under rocks in damp areas.)

Tiger centipede (Large striped species, found in desert areas.)

Soil centipede (Long, threadlike centipede. Represents various geophilomorphs. Found in soil, but you probably guessed that.)

Cave centipede (Generalised giant tropical scutigeramorph. Very long legs, evolved to locate prey in the dark, and terrify humanoids. Possibly painful (but not deadly) bite.)

House centipede (Similar to above, but lives in your house. Name is arguably problematic. Suggest "fortress centipede".)

Greater centipede (Renamed giant centipede. A tropical/cave-dwelling species (although there is presently no way to confine a creature to caves in tropical biomes). Preys on small mammals, such as bats, and has a bite that can cause medical complications in the bite area, although there are no recorded fatalities.)

Pill millipede (Primitive millipede that can roll into a ball, similar to that of a woodlouse.)

Shocking pink dragon millipede (Loudly colored tropical species. Produces cyanide that can poison those who handle it.)

Yellow-spotted millipede (Similar to above, but tasteless in a different way.)

Chongololo (a.k.a the giant African millipede. Tropical forests are its habitat.)

Black millipede
